Lets Talk all things GINGER

Because of its toning and beautifully rich antioxidant properties, ginger is one grocery ingredient you should definitely be adding to your grocery cart. Both ingesting ginger and applying it topically have major anti-aging benefits. It contains around 40 antioxidant properties that prevent free radical damage and protect against aging. It also evens skin tone and improves elasticity.  Below are 3 easy recipes to kick-start your weekly adoption of GINGER into your health routine!

Detox Ginger Bath

Take 1/2 cup of Epsom salt and add 2 tsp ground ginger (either from your spice collection or you can grind it yourself!). Fill the tub like usual with warm water and pour your ingredients in. The ginger increases circulation and boosts immunity while Epsom salts soothe muscles and give you some much-needed magnesium. We love adding BB Beauty oil to enhance moisture to the skin.
